Easter 2014

Easter Sunday was so fun this year!

We met up with my in-laws for a delicious brunch at their house in Coronado, before heading across the bay to watch the Padres play at Petco Park. We started the morning with some refreshing bellinis and strawberries. My mother-in-law made a delicious frittata and sweet potato fries, my father-in-law cooked up some steak on the grill, and we supplied a light salad.

Here are a few images I captured before enjoying the meal!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter with their family!

Welcome Home, Mason!

Jessica waited patiently for months for Mason to come back from his first deployment, and I was so excited to be there to capture this reunion for them! Several former Marines from Mason’s unit were present and kept Jessica occupied while waiting on the buses to arrive. Originally from New Orleans, Jessica said she felt like she was back at Mardi Gras while standing on an ice chest so Mason could see her from afar. ;) Here are some favorites from the evening.

Emotion – A Surprise Proposal in La Jolla

Today, I’m blogging with a purpose: to showcase some emotion. :)

I recently joined a group of photographer bloggers who pick a theme for their posts, and this week’s theme is emotion! Photography is so powerful because we are able to use it to capture fleeting moments and emotions to last longer than a lifetime. Almost a year ago, I was contacted by a handsome guy looking for a photographer to film his surprise proposal to his girlfriend (now wife)! Of course I jumped at the opportunity. You can see more from the proposal here; here are a handful of images to show lovely Amanda’s emotions that evening.
